VISKAEL1 AND GLADSTONE. Tbe Klval" an thry Aparl In the Kerrul Ilsli.ls, A London letter to the Cincinnati OotiimerL'iul says of the debatB in tlyj House of Commons on Hie Irish Univer sity bill: Mr. Disraeli s speech on limaday ovc- . ....... S.I I nmg m aclmillea to do oiio oi clev erest ever mnile In Parliament. He never was in belter form. lie was jaunty na a boy, and nt times almost handsome. 1 he little) corkscrew curl on his upper forehead looked black and shining, and no one listening to his clear, Hexihln voice, or observing tbo flush on lis face, would have imagined that he was older by four years than the pale and worn Prime Minister who sat almost trembling beneath tbe stiletto touches which were to end in a fatal stab. When he spoke of the Council (in which as all knew, lurked the potential Ultramon lanisinof the scheme) as ' those anony mous persons, when he expressed amazement that so zealous sermonizer nirainst Strauss as Oladstono should prohibit tire teaching of moral philosO' phy at 'a 'time when young men were prattling of rotoplasui, anil young Indies in elided saloons were talking un conscious Atheism;' when he asked how nrnfeasor ol ancient history (.modern historr being proscribed) could do with out talking about tbe Hebrews, and how if he did that he could avoid touching on Christianity, in which case he would .ifo his c hair. Dernans by one vote, and that Cardinal Cullen's; when he answered tha government's appeal that if they would only pass tbe second reading all thesa things would be fully considered, with Uwt simple remark : ' Of course they will: what on .rth do we go into com aiitiee for?' there was iu his manner an inexp'ible subtlely, a cool, half pyni- s.t hulf-slmnlohfiartcd self-restraint: shi'fh de'ichted the Home far more than ikn .olomti satire, or the 'elouuence' of the Premier'8 closing speech. Mr. Glad stone' speech was ipdeed eloquent. He aiose with a pallor which seemed to be hithtened by a red flower, worn in his coat, which suggested tpTiitfi trying n blnoni amid the winter of dis- r intent. But bis speech was too i nif-nnir.ua. his areumeQU too strained; nnn poll 1,1 feel in it that kind of niovernesa which despises the effort to prove white to bo white as common nlr.o hut feels it to be worthy ot an ooiiite orator to demonstrate that black i l.hick. The sneech of Mr. Glad- atone became also a sort of appeal ad mixerkordiam a pathetic rcnioustrnnce against deserters. tome bnck-.do, ana aave me from humiliation! I don't care a farthing about the bill; I will throw out clause nf'ter clause of it, Just as you wish; it will go into committee a mere blank paper, on which you my write just what you will; but don t, eh, don t allow me to be triumphed ever by Disraeli I' All this was between the lines of the Premier's speech. But the House was remorseless. The largest majority with which a Prime Minister ever began a Parliament had disappeared, and Mr. Gladstone presently sat Bilent and gloomy with the wild shouts of his foes and quondam friends ringing arouud him." ' t Tlie (arter. A garter has always been associated with sentiments of gallantry, and to wear a lady's favor her glove, her rib lmn. or anvtbinif which belonged to her wus. a common practice ot the age of chivalry; and this token or emprise was regarded with feelings of which pos terity has no comprehension. The grave cause for instituting the most noble aud ancient order of knighthood is said to have been the fall of a lady's garter and the desire of a king to commemorate the knightly, manner in which he relieved a high born damo from tho rudeness of crowd, and converted an untoward acci dent into) a mark of favor and distinc tion. The most generally credited ac count of the foundation of the Order ol the Garter, is that during a festival at court a lady happened to drop her gar ter, which was taken up by King Edward III who. observing a significant smile among the bystander,, exclaimed with wimc displeasure, " Honi soit qui mal y rense Disgraced be be who thinks ill ol it, and aiwa, i win ins.- .v tit lung the most honored garter that ever it i r I.I.. ... waft worn, anu t-uinui min,i ... spirit ol gallantry which belisnged to the time, placed it around his own knee, and in a lew wonthe instituted tbe or der of which it is ti symbol. There are many variations regai diug the name of the lJy, some slating ber to have been the iiueeu, others the Countess of Salis bury, and others the Countess of Kent. S)Bi writers atttrpt Udi-et the or der of lhi "feminine inatiUiUon." but tlifj. are rejeets-J ly the best authorities, wbolxlieve that Ibis remaikable badge an'1 i n.nlLi of whK'ii limrc is no irc tn before Used, i .ill er won IJ r.r r avn c uitu . i l,4,f have l-en elei led unless .i.ine incident had ;iven tie i-i row. after the liei'on oi toe oraer fxicn ladies were invited to share its honors by becoming members of the fraternity wearing Its habit and attending Us fi livitiea; and it was not until the rVign ol Henry VI II that they ceased to belong to the illustrious society. The habit was worn on the feast day of St. George by the queen, by the wives aud widows of the h nights Companions, and, an especial mark of the sovereign favor, by other distinguished ladies These robes, which were annually given out ol tbe royal wardrobe, were made ol the same materials and color a, the surcoals of the knights, and were like thoin embroidered with numerous small garters, each containing the motto, " Honi soit qui mal y penae." The ! dies belonging to the order also wore garter, similar to that of the knights, on their left arm, and were considered mem hers under the name, Ladies of the So ciety or tbe darter. I be rouiuutic spirit of chivalry, which softened the ferocity of the middle ages, becoming impaired and hnallr decaying in the un genial reign ot the King whose time was marked by the atrocious murder of Ms wives, the ladies were then deprived of their ancient participation in the order of the Garter. No attempt seems to havo been made to restore them to tho distinction which tho usage of two ten turiea has given them a strong claim. recurrence of tho ancient practice by ladies of rank of wearing the beautiful garter on their arm has been suggested as an appropriate distinction to the reign of a female sovereign, who also sovereign of the order. The name of Fontaigne, by which tho ladies' coiffure was known during tho latter years of Louis ,IV of France, had an equally singularly origin. Mmc. do Fontaigne, at a hunting party at Vin cennes, had her head dress disurrangnd by a gust ot wind, and in order to keep it in ita place she took one ol her gar ters and tied it up with that. Louis thought that she looked se pretty in this fashion that he begged her to continue to wear her head-dress so arranged Next day the ladies of tha court made their appearance with a ribbon or top knot, which assumed the name of tho " Fontaigne. Among the Roman Indies tho garter was one ot the most ornamental pans of the attire, being formed of gold and silver bands, resplendent with precious stones, sometimes this precious Inn kct was worn on tho naked leg. The patrician dames, iu their mad efforts to oatvie each other in this species ot gar ment, often spent a great portion of their fortunes. Sabina possessed a pair of garters which have become historical. They were valued at 40,000, on account of the rich cameos that clasped them They had what they call an awkward man on a jury down in Maine the other day. It seems the caso involved a claim for money for building a cellar, and the number of perches of stone used was specified, liut this awkward man, as it chanoed, knew something by experience about building stone walls, and tins lit tie item was not quite clear to him. So when the jury went out he took his pen cil and quietly ciphered a little while at the table, ana then, in the most matter- of-fact way, told his lellow jurors that, as he made it, there was enough stone put into those cellar walls to (ill the cellar completely up and havo throe or four peroh ot stone lett, ana ne was puzziea to know where they put their potatoes and garden Bass. A hanging gardcu of sponge is one of the latest nuvoltie. in gardening. Take a white sponge of large size and sow it full of rice, outs or wheat. Then pluco it for a week or ten days in a shallow dish, and as the sponge, will absorb the moisture the seeds will begin to sprout before mauy days. When this has fairly taken place, the sponge may be sus- ueoiled br means oi cords from a hook in the ton ot the window wnero a tune sun wlTl outer. It will tns become like a masa of green, and can be kept wet by the mere immersion of it in a bowl of water. BITTERS.
